. so this entire city, the suburbs around boston, even boston is in a lockdown right now. they have canceled the subways, rails and bus services and have asked anybody who have gone there before they canceled it to go home and asking people to stay inside and businesses are closed and one all nonessential people off the streets so they have a better chance of finding this guy. they don't want him to pose danger to the people of boston or of the suburbs and so, of course, this is a very serious situation. it's causing a lot of anxiety. you do see people walking around and giving everybody a second look to make sure they are not seeing somebody or seeing the second suspect. the police have locked down this area 20-block radius and stopping everybody that comes through. we did see a couple of people while it was still dark out walking alone and the cops treated them very suspiciously. what are you doing around here? shining flashlights in their eyes. as the sun comes up and people are coming out of their houses the police last thing they want them to do. they want them to stay inside a

locked down a major american city. >> i can't ever remember, scott, when we've had an entire city locked down. that's what's so extraordinary about this. listening to you and listening to john just now i think one of the reasons that they're having so much difficulty in finding this man is that we know so little about him. is he a committed zealot? is the he a member of some cult? we don't know that. is he a criminal? he has mo criminal record. if we just knew more about him it might be easier toe out some sort of pattern that he's following but here's hat seths off these bombs apparently and is on a college campus yesterday talking to people as if it's just a fine spring day. it's these answers. the more we find out about him, the less we seem to know about him. a and i think that's what's going to be and has been so difficult in these hours as they roll by today. we still don't know exactly what it is that has caused him to do this. the. >> pelley: bob, it's been so long since 9/11, or at least it feels that way in some ways but this is going to refocus the president's attention on ter

that will help all of us not just those of us on the budget committee, but the entire city as we understand more about how we spend our city dollars. third item i'll mention, which does touch upon a resolution that we will be considering later, has to do with a challenge that i put out to public agencies in 2011 to provide the data around towing time so that our city or citizens could help create an app to allow residents to alert if their car is about to be towed. the mayor indicated support their this idea, an a year and a half later on the towing times has not been released. these are several examples of the type of data that can help make city government work better. the legislation we have in froth of us does three important things. first it creates a chief data officer position. secondly, it requires eversiti department to designate a data coordinator to work with the public and the chief data officer to get this information out. and thirdly, it requires the development of consistent standards in how data is presented. i want to take a moment and thank supervisor avalos and his staff for d

, but they made progress close to 100%. >> reporter: yeah, but what's the area? remember, the entire city is in lockdown now. they have told everybody in boston not to leave their homes, not to open their doors, except to law enforcement officers. so while they might be able to inspect the immediate area around here in watertown, it seems a herculean task to be able to do that for the entire metropolitan region that's essentially in lockdown right now. look, there's a massive police and military presence, actually, here, actually, it's right behind me, the staging area is right behind where i'm standing here at the parking lot of the watertown arsenal here. we've had early this morning convoys of military humvees, bus loads of police and state troopers coming in here and assembling for what we thought was going to be some sort of massive confrontation or assault here. we had blackhawk helicopters. i'm hearing another helicopter right now as we speak. so there's still plenty of police and military presence in the area, but being able to secure the entire city when they don't know whether t

but this really impacts the entire city and thankful that we have the concern of so many other supervisors. just the last thing i would say one thing i would like to see that doesn't involve a tremendous amount of planey is more of the enforcement work and working with sfpd. i think enforcement matters. i know it impacts and changes my behavior as a driver. i am a walker and a driving and the first time i got a ticket it changed my behavior and i don't want that to be the way to go about things and penalize things but sometimes it makes a difference. i don't know if mass public enforcements make a difference but i think it's okay if it's not a plains clothes officer and officers are out there and this is a priority for public safety because i think that sends a signal too and changes the behavior and not just the ticket but the presence of officers working to protect the lives of the workers and residents so i think there is a lot more i could say on the issue but i'm thankful for the work done and working with the departments and coordinate this plan that we have put forward which i think is
